As we mentioned last week, we are spending the last several weeks of 2014 focusing on highly-requested items from our iDeas Forum. This post includes the second of the end-of-the-year goodies that we recently released: Trusted Individuals. Did you ever wish you could enable someone else to add things to your ORCID record, or add your ORCID iD to something that requires your username and password, without giving the other person your sign-in credentials? If so, this new functionality is for you!

As we kick off our third year, and round the end of 2014, we are spending some time focusing on highly-requested items from our iDeas Forum. This forum provides a venue for us to hear suggestions from the very engaged ORCID community. While there are many more great ideas than we have the resources to tackle, we think you’ll be excited by the items that we’ve taken on.

This post describes the first of the end-of-the-year goodies that we are releasing today: Import from BibTeX.​

Happy birthday to us! Public data for you!

Today ORCID turns 2. We have grown so much over the last two years and are close to 1,000,000 active ORCID iDs. Our membership base, site, resources, and API features have grown and developed far beyond our initial expectations, largely thanks to the encouragement and support from the community. Thank you!

With this anniversary, we also announce the release of our second annual public data file. This file contains a snapshot of all public data in the ORCID Registry associated with an ORCID record that was created or claimed by an individual. We publish this file once per year under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal public domain dedication. This means that, to the extent possible under law, ORCID has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to the Public Data File.

CBUA: Consorcio de Bibliotecas Universitarias de Andalucía (Consortium of Andalusian University Libraries) is ORCID’s newest consortium member.  The CBUA ORCID initiative is led by the University of Sevilla, and aims to provide facilities to register researchers at the nine participating universities and to integrate ORCID identifiers into institutional repositories and institutional and regional research information systems (CRIS).  The CBUA have launched a Webpage that provides information on the initiative in Spanish.

Registration now open for Tokyo Outreach Meeting

The program will highlight how research organizations and universities, publishers, and professional societies in Asia are adopting ORCID, sharing lessons learned from implementations as well as plans for the future. The event is free and everyone who performs or supports research is invited to attend:  researchers, funders, professional association leaders, publishers, research policy-makers, repository managers, facilities managers, librarians, institutional leaders, research directors, and vendors. 

Denmark adopts ORCID! A Consortium approach to ORCID implementation.

Denmark’s universities and research institutions all have their own CRIS (current research information system) with extensive information on their researchers and research output. Information on publications are harvested on a national basis to create a national research dissemination and promotion site. This also supports the calculation of the national bibliographic indicator, one of the comparative measures used by the government to determine the funding of universities.
